    Webinar on Funding Opportunities under Innovation Procurement in Horizon 2020

    Information about Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI)

    14-06-2017, 10:00–11:30 in Bern
    Registration fee: free

    The public sector in the EU, as elsewhere in the world, is faced with important challenges. These include modernising internal operations of public services to make them run more efficiently, as well as improving the external quality of public services to the citizens, e.g. improving high quality affordable health care to cope with an ageing population, improving energy efficiency, etc. 

    Addressing such challenges can require new and better solutions:

    • Procurement of solutions new to the market where the public sector acts as first customer: Public Procurement of Innovative solutions (PPI) 
    • Procurement of R&D services to tackle specific public needs when solutions are not yet on the market:  Pre-commercial Procurement (PCP) 

    Horizon 2020 reinforces these co-financing mechanisms and will continue boosting in the upcoming work programme for the calls in 2018-2020. 

    This webinar aims to give more information on how PCP and PPI work. The agenda consists of a detailed presentation by the EC representative on basic info, benefits, eligibility, etc. and a successful Swiss PCP project testimonial.


    10:00 - 10:50 Advantages for investing in Innovation Procurement (PCP/PPI) and H2020 support. Speaker: Vasileios Tsanidis, Policy Officer, European Commission, DG CNECT, Directorate of Digital Single Market, Start-Ups and Innovation Unit 

    10:50 - 11:15 Testimonial from a successful PCP project: Procurement Innovation for Cloud Services in Europe. Speaker: Bob Jones, Helix Nebula Science Cloud Project Coordinator, CERN

    11:15 - 11:30 Questions
